The Kenya national team Harambee Stars head coach Stanley Okumbi was once again left fuming after watching his team play to a 1 – 1 draw with the visiting Sudan in an international friendly match staged at the Moi International Sports Center (MISC) Kasarani on Tuesday 31 May.
The coach, for the second straight match, lamented at the poor attack his team had shown as it struggled to come from behind and as he prepares the team for the game against Congo Brazzaville on Sunday 5 June, he is hoping for better.
His lamentation at the poor returns in attack were quantified by the fact that for the second straight match a defensive player had to salvage the team, this time, Maritzburg United defender Brian Mandela being the hero with the leveler late in the match.
“It is a pity that once again we had to struggle that much. Our attacking front once again was blunt and this is the reason we are struggling. We need to sharpen in attack going forward because that is also the only way we can get our fans back to the stadium.
“In the two friendly matches that is what has come out clearly and we need it addressed before the Congo match on Sunday,” he said.
